Exclamation How to Exit X-Server ?!

first of all : im totally new to linux ... but that should be no problem (i hope so )

my problem is, that when i try to install the new nvidia driver on my redhat9 linux, the installation breaks up telling me, that i have to exit x-server. but iam in the command line, so already exited my desktop ... (the correct error message is like : it seems like you are runnin an x-server ...) so how do i exit the x-server (and what the hell is this ?!)

i searched the foum (and the internet) for this problem (if this is a problem) .. but like bono from u2 said : i still havent found what im looking for

ill would be very happy if someone can give me advice for this. a little overview - step by step or something. you would make a newbie linux user god damn happy ;-)

so far

thanks for your quick respone .. but that doesnt solve the problem.

i already hit the combo and iam in the command line interface (after loggin in as root). so now .. i change to the dir where the nvdia file is .. i execute it .. it runs .. and then it tells me, that i probably have an x-server running and the setup ends.

iam not guilty !!!! ;-))

err.. just for the right understanding : x is the desktop enviroment ?

ok .. heres the whole story.
i installed redhat9 .. all right so far .. downloaded the newest driver from nvidia.com .. executed via the terminal the file .. error message : exit x-server.
so .. strg alt backspace .. i logged on as root and executed the file again .. the same error message appears : exit x-server

i know i know .. its a bit difficult to explain if you dont know what is what. im workin on it =)
